Poetry Tuesday: 1926 Jazz Stove

Blue Stove

Afternoon snack

Grandma's blue stove's in The Blue Stove now
Bopbop be diddle. Ba-daaaaaaaaaaa dow!
And coal or wood'll burn your pants
If you give it half a chance
Now fridge cold, its ghosts still dance.
Skiddly, askiddly, skadiddly pow!

Crinkle cookies melt with grace,
Go brownie soft inside your face,
And oatmeal raisin - it ain't dry
Hearts soar; mouths smile; tongues do fly.
They do fly.

da da da da da da pyoooooo!

Two dollars buys you a coffee
Two dollar cider, that too - sha SHA!
Mustabeenhot, littlegramma -
She was. For pies. For cakes. For mygoodgoshsakes
that hot little stove colored blue.
Even COLD it can do.

be-da ba-da-ba ba-doo....


The Blue Stove is open

[The Blue Stove opened last Friday. Corner of Withers and Graham. Dee dop a wow.]

now, i'm no connoisseur, but i thought those were some exceptionally delicious chocolate cookies! (are they called chocolate crinkles?)

Jennette said...

Yes. Yes they were.

I love this post!

Chocolate Crinkles were my favorite as I kid and I am so stoked I leave next to a bakery that makes them so well!

Keep the poetry coming!

DM - My chocolate crinkle recipe is from my aunt, but I love them, too!

Thanks for the feedback. I wonder sometimes if Poetry Tuesdays drive people away -- due to the oddness. ;)

Katty, I can't tell if you're just promoting your link to Costa Rica Homes for Sale or a true stove enthusiast, but I like your style. ;) Thanks for the comment.

wonderful blog!!! i really like the stove, specially the big ones because i think they are more comfortable for me and I feel identify with my stove all the time. Actually my boyfriend cooked for me once after to buy viagra, then he gave me the surprise.
